ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU GRÄFENBERG GG 2017 Score 95 Still a bit closed on the nose, but there's a flinty note, too. On the palate this combines the typical richness of this site with the racy and mineral personality of the vintage. Great balance at the long, precise finish. Drink or hold.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KABINETT 2017 Score 93 The best Kabinett from Robert Weil in many years! Sleek, very bright and only just off-dry with stunning freshness at the crystalline finish. Drink or hold.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH GRÄFENBERG AUSLESE 2017 Score 97 What a crazy nose! Licorice, anise, lime zest and fresh herbs pour from the glass of this rapier-sharp and laser-bright Auslese that currently gives no quarter, but will surely become more graceful as it ages over the coming decades. Drink or hold.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH GRÄFENBERG AUSLESE GOLD CAP (AUCTION) 2017 Score 98 Completely different from the regular Gräfenberg Auslese, thanks to the floral-honey character from Botrytis. But packed within that is a ton of herbal and mineral freshness. Rich yet bright finish that makes a serious statement. Drink or hold.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH GRÄFENBERG BEERENAUSLESE 2017 Score 98 Very complex interplay of floral honey and fresh herbs. Very concentrated and vibrant, yet the super-long finish is graceful. Try in 2019. Limited production.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH GRÄFENBERG BEERENAUSLESE GOLD CAP 2017 Score 99 This is like bathing in floral honey, but without it sticking to you anywhere. Mind-bending concentration and brilliance, this will need some time to behave in anything approaching a normal manner. Wait as long as you can to sink into this wickedly delicious essence of the grape. Try in 2020. Very limited production.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH GRÄFENBERG SPÄTLESE 2017 Score 95 A concentrated but very elegant Spätlese with mandarin oranges, white peaches and a touch of mint in the nose. On the palate this is still tight and highly strung, like a fully wound pocket watch. Very bright and very long finish. Drink or hold.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH GRÄFENBERG TROCKENBEERENAUSLESE 2017 Score 100 This enormously concentrated, honey-sweet riesling is also amazingly pure and racy with huge levels of energy. This giant needs many years to reach optimum harmony, but the finish is already breathtaking. Very limited production.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH TURMBERG AUSLESE 2017 Score 96 I love the ripe-melon and mint nose of this pristine and concentrated Auslese. First, it dances on the palate, but then charges at you in the powerful finish. Enormous aging potential. Drink in 2019.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH TURMBERG BEERNAUSLESE 2017 Score 98 A top sweet riesling with a nose that makes you think of great dry whites! Incredibly intense mint and lemon-balm character. Sure, this has some sweetness, but on the breathtaking palate it seems to take off vertically, bound for Mars! Super-clean and long finish. You can drink this now, but it should outlive us all! Very limited production.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH TURMBERG SPÄTLESE 2017 Score 94 This Spätlese may be really closed, but it is barely sweet. Great structure and balance with a long, super-clean finish that shows intense lemon-zest, herbal and mineral character. Long aging potential. Drink in 2019.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICH TURMBERG TROCKENBEERENAUSLESE 2017 Score 98 An extremely wide spectrum of concentrated aromas of dried stone fruit and enormous creaminess, the high acidity already beautifully integrated. Very long finish. Drink or hold. Very limited production.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KIEDRICHER TROCKEN 2017 Score 90 A sleek and polished dry Riesling with rather pronounced acidity that may be a bit too much for some. Lots of lemon and lime at the bright finish. Drink now.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU KLOSTERBERG EL 2017 Score 93 Very flinty with tart peach and apricot notes in the nose. A very sleek and pristine dry Riesling with plenty of herbal freshness and a long, stony finish. Drink or hold.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU TROCKEN 2017 Score 91 The slight hint of funk in the nose that quickly turns into a flinty note, announces a change of style at this famous estate. Perhaps the sugar levels weren't high. Yet, this is rather bold as well as very crisp. Discreet, white-fruit character and quite a salty mineral finish. Drink now.
ROBERT WEIL RIESLING RHEINGAU TURMBERG EL 2017 Score 94 A puristic dry Riesling with delicate white-fruit and floral aromas, as well as something flinty. Sleek and lemony, but compact and strict with a super-clean finish. Drink or hold.
